Terminological Considerations Regarding Content and Language Integrated Learning.
Nikula, Tarja; Marsh, David
Bulletin suisse de linguistique applique, n67 p13-18 Apr 1998
The term "content and language integrated learning" is suggested as an umbrella term for a general pedagogical approach that includes a number of methods of teaching and learning non-language subjects through a second or foreign language. Usage of other, related terms is discussed, and distinctions are made between them. These include teaching content through a foreign language; content-based second language instruction; language enhanced/enriched content instruction; bilingual education; mainstream bilingual education; plurilingual education; and immersion. It is suggested that none of these are equivalent terms, and that different locales may have very different ways of realizing content and language integration, confirming the need for a broad term to encompass a variety of educational approaches.
